Checkout one of my dope sweat suit and latest DIY project…

Yo whats up!

If you have been following my social media closely there’s a small chance you’ve gotten a glimpse of my “Fear Of God” inspired sweat suit I made. For the longest I’ve been a big fan of the designer Jerry Lorenzo and a lot of his work. Lately I had my eyes on his sweats that I personally can’t afford, but I can make them myself…lol!

I used two different patterns to pull off the look: (1) McCall’s 7637  (2) McCall’s 7486


Pattern: McCall 7637
Pattern Description:  Track Jacket
Pattern Sizing: Small
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I didn’t like the amount go ease that came in the sleeve.
Fabric Used: Double Knit & Rib Knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I took out 2.5″ of ease out the sleeve and I continued the front zipper all the way through the collar.
Would you sew it again? Yes
Would you recommend it to others? Yes

    I love how your sweat suit turned out. I have sooo many questions. Where did you get the camo knit for the lining? I haven’t been able to find any near me and haven’t seen any online in the green pattern.

    Where did you get your ribbing? That’s another thing I haven’t been able to find.

    Also, could you give more info on your mods to the pants pattern ,please. I didn’t see the drop crotch piece in the line drawing. And how did you draft the stripes into the side? Did just going down a size give you that fit? Because yours look more fitted than then the pattern.

    I know these are a lot of questions. But I really liked how your suit turned out and would appreciate any extra information you could give. Maybe make a utube video/ sewalong 😉
